LATEST COKER DESIGNS INCREASE LIQUID YIELDS, REDUCE EMISSIONS
Modern coker designs incorporate features that maximize liquid yields, enhance safety, and reduce emissions. Careful engineering of delayed cokers can as much as eliminate liquid effluents. Coking and other bottom-of-the-barrel processes were the topic of presentations at Foster Wheeler USA Corp.'s Heavy Oils Conference, in June at Orlando. At the conference, John D. Elliott, Foster Wheeler, Perryville, N.J., provided a perspective on coker design considerations.
